BACKGROUND: The aim of our study is to assess the effect of bundle branch block (BBB) on mortality and left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) in ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients treated in the current era of percutaneous reperfusion therapy. PATIENTS AND METHODS: In this retrospective cohort study, a total of 1123 STEMI patients treated in the University Medical Center Groningen from January 2011 until May 2013 were included. The follow-up duration was 2-4 years...

OBJECTIVES: The difference in intraluminal intensity of blood speckle (IBS) on integrated backscatter intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) across the coronary stenosis was reportedly correlated with fractional flow reserve (FFR) in the left descending coronary artery. The aim of this study was to investigate the novel physiological assessment using IVUS in all coronary arteries. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Fifty-four patients with 57 coronary lesions underwent both FFR and IVUS...

AIMS: Bioresorbable polymer drug-eluting stent technologies have been considered to have the potential to enhance vascular healing by reducing polymer exposure to the vessel wall, potentially allowing the earlier discontinuation of dual antiplatelet therapy. At present, the early vascular healing response to this type of technologies is still unclear. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The TIMELESS study is a multicenter, prospective, single-arm study that enrolled real-world patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention...

OBJECTIVES: Data on bioresorbable vascular scaffolds for recanalization of chronic total occlusions (CTOs) are limited. We compared the bioresorbable scaffold Absorb with everolimus-eluting stents for the treatment of true CTO. METHODS: After recanalization of CTO, 15 lesions treated with the bioresorbable scaffold Absorb were matched with 15 lesions receiving everolimus-eluting stent (EES) (http://www.clinicaltrials.gov NCT02162082). Match criteria were presence of diabetes mellitus, total device length and maximal device diameter...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of diabetes duration on long-term clinical outcomes after drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation or coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). METHODS: A total of 820 diabetic patients treated with initial DES (n=451) or CABG (n=369) were consecutively enrolled in this single-center follow-up study. The main outcomes included major adverse cardiac events and major adverse cardiac or cerebrovascular events (MACCEs)...

Highly active antiretroviral treatment (HAART) has considerably increased the life expectancy of patients infected with HIV. Coronary artery disease is a leading cause of mortality in patients infected with HIV. This is primarily attributed to their increased survival, HAART-induced metabolic derangements, and to HIV itself. The pathophysiology of atherosclerosis in HIV is both multifactorial and complex - involving direct endothelial injury and dysfunction, hypercoagulability, and a significant contribution from traditional cardiac risk factors...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to provide additional insight into the role of fibrinogen in coronary artery disease by investigating the associations between plasma fibrinogen with both degree and composition of coronary atherosclerosis as determined by virtual histology-intravascular ultrasound. PATIENTS AND METHODS: In 581 patients undergoing coronary angiography for acute coronary syndrome (ACS) or stable angina pectoris, preprocedural blood samples were drawn for fibrinogen, C-reactive protein (CRP), interleukin-6, and plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 measurements, and virtual histology-intravascular ultrasound of a nonculprit coronary artery was performed...

BACKGROUND: Although several studies have shown promise for noninvasive angiography by coronary computed tomographic angiography (CCTA), few prospective multicenter trials have been conducted. This study evaluated the diagnostic accuracy of Visipaque enhanced CCTA to detect obstructive coronary stenosis compared with quantitative coronary angiography (QCA). PATIENTS AND METHODS: Three sites prospectively enrolled 77 patients (58.1% men, 54 years) with chest pain referred for invasive coronary angiography (ICA)...

BACKGROUND: Patients with chronic total occlusions of a coronary artery represent a complex, yet common, clinical conundrum among patients with ischemic heart disease. Chronic total occlusion angioplasty is increasingly being used as a treatment for these complex lesions. There is a compelling need to better quantify the safety, efficacy, benefits, and costs of the procedure. METHODS: To address these gaps in knowledge, we designed the Outcomes, Patient Health Status, and Efficiency IN Chronic Total Occlusion Hybrid Procedures (OPEN CTO) study, an investigator-initiated multicenter, single-arm registry including 12 centers with a planned enrollment of 1000 patients...

OBJECTIVES: The objective of this study is to report the dose response in ODYSSEY phase 3 clinical trials of proprotein convertase subtilisin kexin type 9 inhibition with alirocumab in patients not at prespecified lipid goals who received a per-protocol dose increase from 75 every 2 weeks (Q2W) to 150 mg Q2W. METHODS: Patients (n=2181) receiving statins were enrolled in six phase 3 randomized, double-blind, double-dummy trials (24-104 weeks): alirocumab versus placebo or ezetimibe 10 mg/day...

BACKGROUND: Senescence is a major factor that increases oxidative stress in mitochondria, which contributes toward the pathogenesis of heart disease. However, the effect of antioxidant therapy on cardiac mitochondria in aged-cardiac performance remains elusive. OBJECTIVES: We postulated that the mitochondrial targeting of superoxide scavenging would have benefits in the aged heart. METHODS AND RESULTS: Generation of superoxide in the mitochondria and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate oxidase activity increased in the heart of old mice compared with that in young mice...

OBJECTIVE: An association between coronary artery disease (CAD) and serum omentin-1 was recently identified. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of atorvastatin on serum levels of omentin-1 in patients with CAD. METHODS: One-hundred and ninety-eight patients with CAD were divided into two groups: those with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and those with stable angina pectoris (SAP). All patients were randomized to receive atorvastatin therapy at a dose of either 20 or 40 mg/day for 12 weeks...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to assess the association of widowhood with the severity and extent of coronary artery disease (CAD), and whether it is modified by sex or socioeconomic status. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 1068 patients undergoing coronary angiography at five centers in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates were included in the study. CAD was defined as more than 70% lumen stenosis in a major epicardial vessel or more than 50% in the left main coronary artery...

BACKGROUND: Cancer patients are mostly excluded from percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) clinical trials and oncologic history is lacking from most PCI registries. Thus, little is known about the clinical outcomes following PCI among cancer survivors. Our aim was to examine the prevalence and long-term outcome of cancer survivors among a large PCI patient cohort. METHODS: We retrospectively integrated and analyzed cardiovascular and oncologic data of 12 785 consecutive patients who underwent PCI between April 2004 and October 2014...
